The Visva Vajra is a protective symbol that dispels evil, temptation and deception from the four directions, dispels ignorance and invites wisdom. Often used for meditation, the music of a singing bowl is meant to soothe your soul, cleanse your heart and free your mind of worries. To make the bowl sing, first tap it. Firmly hold the smooth part of the stick upright against the bowl and move it slowly around the outside of the bowl in a circular motion keeping firm contact with the bowl’s surface. The bowl will start to resonate.
